2 Frontrunners Emerge For Russell Wilson After Broncos Cut Him

Russell Wilson’s time with the Denver Broncos is coming to an end.

After giving up a lot in the way of draft capital, money and resources in order to acquire him from the Seattle Seahawks, Broncos brass has decided to call it on this little experiment after one-and-a-half failed seasons.

While Wilson has actually experienced something of a career turnaround in 2023, particularly given his disastrous innagural campaign in Denver, it simply doesn’t justify his price tag.

Wilson is due $39 million in guaranteed cash next year alone. After that, he is guaranteed $37 million. Because of the hefty cash owed his way, the Broncos decided to bench their star quarterback this week to ensure he doesn’t get hurt before they make a final decision on his future.

According to sports insider Jason McIntyre, two clear frontrunners for Wilson’s services have already emerged: the Tennessee Titans and Atlanta Falcons.

Because both teams are currently in weak divisions, the argument in favor of Wilson making the jump to either the NFC South or AFC South is that he won’t have to compete with the likes of Patrick Mahomes and Justin Herbert weekly.

Atlanta, in particular, really has a big hole at the quarterback position. Tennessee has Will Levis, obviously, but the jury is still out on him long-term.

In an NFL week that saw Olivia Culpo dedicate a provocative video to Christian McCaffrey, Mina Kimes share an intimate photo of herself, the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders drop a racy video – somehow Wilson’s future is the biggest topic of conversation in football.

It will be interesting to see where all parties involved proceed from here.

Where will Wilson be playing football come this time in 2024? Time will tell.
